    2.6 short ball, and the breakthrough...round the wicket, cramping him for room, goes for the pull and the top edge loops to Mills at short fine leg 17/1
    6.5 and there's his first wicket! Trying to clear long-off, comes from somewhere close to the bottom of the bat, made a 'plink' noise as he struck it and a neat catch from Jordan running in and a little to his right 58/2
    8.5 and another! Holds this back a little, Mendis comes down the pitch but can only pop a return catch at shoulder height. Might have just held on the surface a touch. 74/3
    10.3 three on debut! In front of his home crowd. Mathews misses a slog sweep as the pressure from the spinners shows 81/4
    17.2 finds cover, Chandimal just drives a full delivery into the hands of the captain on the edge of the circle 129/8
    10.4 what a shamozzle...and it's a run out! Superb work from Roy. It was almost a catch to cover as Shanaka prodded foward and was nearly done in the air. The ball looped over cover and Roy swooped from the deep, a strong throw comfortably beating Shanaka's attempt for a second. Buttler barely had to move 82/5
    14.2 another run out! It's a direct hit from backward point by Vince. Was a back-of-a-length slower ball which was dabbed to the off side and he's miles out! Where was the dive? Excellent work from Vince. 106/6
    15.5 excellent delivery! Back of a length on off stump, 87mph, touch of extra bounce and it takes a thick edge through to Buttler. That zipped off the surface, a cross-seamer from Plunkett. Prasanna trying to run it to third man 122/7
    19.5 finds long-on...Maharoof swings through the line of a full delivery and Willey, on as sub, barely had to move near the boundary (Willey's sore shins clearly not stopping him fielding) 140/9
    not out
    19.6 bowled out! Jordan gets it full and straight, Bandara gives himself room and then misses 140/10
